Kanchenjunga Mountain, Darjeeling
Admire Kanchenjunga Mountain, the third-highest peak in the world and a focal point of the Himalayas. Straddling the border with Nepal, the mountain has an elevation of 8,586 m (28,169 ft) and can be viewed from a number of locations across the local area, its snowy summit cutting into the sky. Note that permission to access the mountain from India remains nearly impossible. Serious mountain climbers traditionally approach the giant from the Nepalese side (this is for experts only--20 percent of those attempting to reach the peak have died trying).

It is fortunate to see the beautiful scenes from a distance. Strange psoriasis takes place when sunlight flows and shines in Kanchenjunga. Viewing this scene twice from Sikkim's Peling.
A view from Gangtok when sunlight touches the snow caped mountains it turns out to flows gold. A view that ever lasts in our eyes.
